Teacher: Katy Schutte (UK)
With only two performers, how can you move fluidly from one scene to another, how do you hold more than two characters in one scene, what can you do with object and environment and what is your show's dynamic? Working on techniques for rehearsing and performing two-person improvisation, this workshop builds your trust and skills around that one other person. You can bring a duo partner if you wish, but you do not need one to attend.
